RBC PGA Scramble National Champions Crowned
Acton, ON (September 25, 2020) – Canada’s greatest series of golf events came to close this week with Team Talking Rock from Chase, B.C., becoming the 2020 national champions. As a result of the national final being cancelled due to COVID-19, finalists from coast-to-coast were competing for titles in their own region as well as the overall title, awarded to the team with the greatest score differential*.
The winning squad—Cole Bryant, Lee Bryant, Mike Hughston, Joe Saunders and PGA of Canada professional Nathan Grieve—from Talking Rock Golf Course sat atop the Canada-wide leaderboard with a score differential of -19.14 after their regional final win at Tower Ranch Golf Club on Aug. 18. Their score proved to be strong enough to fend off winners of from the subsequent nine regional finals, including runner-up Team Crimson Ridge from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., who finished just 0.91 back.
“To come out on top of almost 11,000 players is pretty incredible,” said Team Talking Rock’s Cole Bryant. “We didn’t expect to win heading into our local qualifier but after playing well there, we sort of thought we found something as a team.” And find ‘something,’ they certainly did. Team Talking Rock’s bogey-free round at Tower Ranch featured five eagles and twelve birdies en route to a net 23.7-under-par finish.
Winning groups from each regional final took home a $1,500 per person online shopping credit with Titleist and FootJoy and a custom-leather keepsake from Lincoln and Dormie Workshop. On top of their shopping spree prize, Team Talking Rock was awarded a VIP RBC Canadian Open experience including airfare, accommodations and tickets to next year’s PGA Tour event at St. George’s Golf & Country Club in Etobicoke, Ont.
